March Madness

Surprised no threads really on this so far?

Games start at 12, so submit before then, or even after the games start if those were honestly your picks. No prizes, just interwebz respect.

Scoring system for each game is (Round)*(Seed)

1, 2, 4, 6, 8, 12 points for 1st, 2nd, Sweet 16, Elite 8, Final Four, and Championship Game respectively.

Seed points are (1/2)*seed rounding up. So 1pt for a 1 or 2 seed, 2pts for a 3 or 4 seed, 3pts for a 5 or 6 seed, and so-on and so-on. That means that the 8-9 game matters more than the 2-15 game, etc.

Here’s my picks:

2nd Round
Louisville 16/8/4
Ohio State
Arizona 16
Wake Forest
West Virginia 16/8
Kansas
USC 16
Michigan State
UConn
BYU 16
Purdue 16/8
Washington
Marquette
Missouri 16
California
Memphis 16/8/4/2/Champion
Pittsburgh 16
Tennessee
Wisconsin 16/8
Xavier
UCLA 16/8/4
Villanova
Texas
Duke 16
North Carolina 16
Butler
Illinois
Gonzaga 16/8/4/2
Arizona State 16/8
Syracuse
Clemson 16
Oklahoma

Bold moves? Sure. But I figure you gotta get kinda lucky to win these things, so I just picked all of the upsets I thought were somewhat likely.

If you want in, just join in with the teams and how far you think they’ll go, as I did.

Haven’t really kept up with whose in what region, but can pretty much gaurantee that this will be one of the wilder tournaments in recent memory. This season has been bananas.
